Love this little munchkin. Seems like I just shot her newborn pictures. Wow time goes by so fast!
I’m still about 100 people behind on blogging but I’m trying to get a few here and there:)

Are you dying over this dress she brought?


I got some of them on etsy and some through trendytots in the riverwoods.

Would you be willing to share where you got all these adorable headbands?

I’m dying over her brown eyes!!! I completely covet brown eyes being a blue-eyed chica and coming from a blue-eyed only family AND only “making” blue-eyed babies!! GORGEOUS!! I have to agree the dress is to die for and HELLO your pictures are stunning!!! Katie, you are an amazing photographer!!! :)

The dress is amazing! It looked familiar to me actually. So I went and double checked. Yep – the dress is from Flora and Henri. Here is the link to the dress:
Very beautiful, but wow, $200 for a baby dress!

finds of the fabulous kind

I love getting the opportunity to shoot all of these fabulous clothing lines. Especially because I don’t know how to even thread a sewing machine. It is one talent I would love to achieve someday. Check out:


SO Cute! Your daughters are awesome! Mine hates getting her pictures taken. Where did you get the blue and brown flower backdrop

 ( Mar 29th, 2011 6:29 pm)
Joy Stallard 

I love Olivia in the long skirt and Mia with the birds nest. To die for precious. The pinwheels and Mia’s hat are adorable! So whimsical and fun!

 ( Feb 4th, 2011 7:47 pm)

I think all your pictures are just to die for!!! Where do you get all the paper medallions in the background? I want some for my daughter bedroom!

Thanks everyone! Yes Stephanie, I should know how to sew:) Someday I will learn. Jessica- I got that crown at dear lizzy’s in Highland.

 ( Jan 29th, 2011 4:21 am)
Stephanie Baxter 

okay. The clothes are super cute. . . but those models are just over the top. Your girls are just too, too cute. And. . .I just have to add that I am shocked at your revelation that you don’t even know how to thread a sewing machine.;)

 ( Jan 27th, 2011 11:33 pm)

Your pictures are AMAZING…Everything you do is something better and better…I love the pictures of your girls…Where is the Birthday crown from…Georgoeus….!!

I would love for someone to start a line of creative and adorable boy clothes! If that combination even exists for boys. Haha. I love all of these cute girl clothes :)

 ( Jan 26th, 2011 6:08 am)

I just recently started following your blog!! I love these, I loved Christmas, I love them all!! Very inspiring.

 ( Jan 25th, 2011 7:43 pm)

I LOVE the long tiered-ruffle skirt. Adorable! Great photos too (of course). :)

 ( Jan 25th, 2011 6:58 pm)

Beautiful as always! If you don’t mind me asking, where do you find your gorgeous backgrounds??

 ( Jan 25th, 2011 6:22 pm)

Gorgeous photos. I absolutely cannot show my daughter anymore the photos in your blog, as at the age of five she always goes: “I love that, look at that hairband, mummy I need that dress etc.” Not to mention that accoring to her she definitely needs a doll house like in your xmas photos. Your photos are too “yummy”! I love those clothes too.

Charlie & Annabel

So I never photograph babies older than 3 weeks, unless they have been in the NICU, since they are so hard to get good sleepy pictures. Well this little gal had to be in the NICU for quite a bit, so she was a little older than I normally shoot. She was a little tricky to get to sleep, but it was so worth it. Isn’t she the cutest little thing EVER!


Sara I got it on etsy.

 ( Feb 27th, 2011 9:24 pm)

I MUST know where you got the precious pink hat! I just had my little girl and these photos really are an inspiration!! Thank you for sharing!

Just stumbled across your site/blog from a link in another photography forum, and just had to stop and leave a comment, because I was gobsmacked at your work. Truly stunning, inspirational, beautiful images. The hard work and talent really shows through in the pics. Wonderful stuff.
